Hibernian - looking to get back to winning ways
Hibernian got off to a good start in the 2022-2023 season, winning five of their first nine Premiership matches. However, since then, they have only been able to pick up three victories in 13 league outings, suffering nine losses along the way. In spite of this, Lee Johnson's team has been performing better of late, winning their last two league matches against Livingston and Motherwell. They have accumulated seven points over the course of their most recent five league matches. The Edinburgh club's most recent Premiership match against Dundee United ended in a 2-2 draw thanks to an equalizer scored by Kevin Nisbet in the dying seconds of regulation. Despite this result, the Edinburgh side will be frustrated to have surrendered two points on their own turf after having the upper hand for the majority of the contest. Despite taking more than 20 shots at Easter Road over the course of the previous weekend, the Hibs were eliminated from the Scottish Cup by their rivals, Hearts, by a score of 3-0. This result means that Hibs have no grounds for complaint on their previous result. Only three teams in the Premiership have experienced more defeats than Hibernian's 11 this season, but Johnson's men will be confident of attaining a positive result on Saturday because they won a home match against Aberdeen by a score of 3-1 back in September.
Aberdeen - a chance to put an end to their consecutive losses
It would not be an exaggeration to state that Aberdeen's loss to Darvel is one of the most shocking results in the annals of the Scottish Cup's long and illustrious history. The team from the sixth tier embarrassed the seven-time champions to pull off the inconceivable surprise. At Recreation Park, the Dons had a slight advantage in terms of possession, but both teams were able to register three shots on target. Jordan Kirkpatrick scored the only goal of the game halfway through the first half, earning him the reputation of a hero in Darvel. As a result of the shocking development that occurred on Monday, Aberdeen will travel to Easter Road on a three-game losing streak across all competitions. They were eliminated from the Scottish League Cup by Rangers, and then they were blown out by Hearts 5-0 in the league, so they are currently on a losing streak. It is important to note that the team managed by Jim Goodwin has the third-worst away record in the Premiership. They have accumulated just seven points out of a possible 33 while playing away from home so far this season, with a record of two wins, one draw, and eight losses. Worse still, the Dons have lost each of their previous five league matches played away from home. In the process, they have allowed their opponents to score 16 goals, which is more than any other team has allowed on the road this season.
